THE DAY I GOT MY FIRST PRIME LENS

Excited. Inexperienced. Young. Eager to learn. Today I got my first prime lens in the mail. I recently learned that a prime lens is a lens whose focal point is fixed (therefore there is no zoom), which ultimately leaves you with crisper, prettier photos. It is quite an upgrade from the zoom kit lens that came with our camera. I love it!

This week I started an online course on photography basics. I know that if I want to be taken seriously, I need to make an effort to know my stuff and learn the lingo. Clearly I wish that I could just wake up tomorrow and be a pro, but I know that all the little steps I'm taking will add up over time.

Laziness, fear, impatience, and doubt all pose serious threats to my dream; but I am determined to press on and strive, to grow and improve. I want to be able to always remember the girl I was when I got my first prime lens. Excited. Inexperienced. Young. Eager to learn. And ready to practice!
